  1. Okay, so the strangest thing was going on. That specific file would not work! The code wasn't the problem, the PHP is running fine as well as Apache2. I deleted phpinfo.php and made a new file with the same exact name, phpinfo.php, and copied the same exact code to it. It worked great. I am happy it works now!

I've gotten to the part in which Larry talks about getting a phpinfo.php file running. Unfortunately, it covers Windows and OS X, but not linux/Ubuntu. I am currently running Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS 64-bit. I am also using Gnome Shell Version 3.12.2 (if that is at all relevant, it wouldn't hurt to know at least) I have Apache2 installed on my system (2.4.7) and I do not know how to get phpinfo.php running on it.
